Chilling to 'Phaedra' by Tangerine Dream.

I do like a bit of Tangerine Dream.

It's an effing awesome LP, just turn it up as loud as I have.

A mate of mine contends that it's their greatest album. I know the general consensus is that Master Of Puppets is their finest hour but I think he's got a point.

I'm not always in the mood for it, but sometimes, when you have the time, a bit of TD just lets you swim in the sounds.

Spot on, they're not necessarily a band I'd turn to often but when you're in the mood something like Ricochet really hits the spot.

If you haven't got these TD albums already, try 'Force majeure' or the 'Thief' soundtrack.

Possibly should come under 'what are you watching' but a great mini documentary about John Joseph from the Cro Mags. This is a decent intro but doesn't tell half the story about this guy, who is incredible.

ABC - The Lexicon of Love, plus 'When Smokey sings' from the Alphabet City album. Some wonderful pop/soul tracks.

Possibly the apogee of MTV-era hubris, topping even Duran Duran's Wild Boys?

. Crikey, he's the black Vanilla Ice!

 

Cameos up the wazoo, from James Belushi to (via Milli Vanilli) James Brown... none of them could save this.

Consider yourselves warned! This track, by preposterous leathery Sixties TV 'heartthrob' Peter Wyngarde may just turn your stomach.

 

Ye gods!

Which Rega did you have?

 

I currently have an Exact 2, and as well as sounding pretty good, I appreciate the fuss-free 3-point mounting.

I was running an Elys 2 didn't match my Avid at all, I knew I had to step up to get the best out of my TT, not cheap I know it's been worth the saving up.

I've read great reviews of the Exact 2, I got my local dealer to fit the cart just didn't trust myself

I had an Ortofon OM (can't recall the model number), followed by a Goldring and a Grado. Despite taking plenty of time/care on installation, I always had the sneaking suspicion that I hadn't done the setup exactly as right as it could be.

 

With the Rega's preset mounting system for their own tonearms, it takes a lot of the neuroses out of cartridge adjustment. Bolt it in, set the VTF and tracking, then play music.
